courtship ritual

It started, as it usually does, with me discovering the object of my desire as soon as I entered the room. I leaned against the wall a short distance away and made casual conversation with a friend, but made eye contact, and then again, the second time more boldly, allowing my gaze to linger.

I decided to play it slow, and relaxed a bit, acting coy. There was no need to rush. I was obviously interested, and could tell that the attraction was mutual. I also already knew, with a confidence bordering on brashness, that it would ultimately be consummated. However, although there is much to be said for the direct approach, I knew that the satisfaction would be all the more fulfilling if I drew out the flirtation.

In the intervening moments, I let my mind race and my eyes shamelessly wander, imagining the sensual delights that awaited me ... soon, I became aware that my pulse had increased as my thoughts were filled with a delirious mix of imagined texture, smell, taste ...

My friend noticed that my attention was focused elsewhere, gave me a knowing smile, and wisely pointed out that nothing was going to happen unless I made the first move.

I nodded and put my plan in action.

I approached my quarry, smiling. I picked up a plastic knife and positioned it carefully, making the first cut, and then the second. The crisp, soft crust yielded easily, flaking up a bit as I removed the knife. I removed the slice in one easy piece, noting with delight that the filling was substantial enough not to drip as I dished it onto a paper plate.

I wished my co-worker a happy birthday as I grabbed a plastic fork on the way out of the conference room, and made my way to my office to enjoy my prize in private.

Apple pie: my favorite.

Awesome. What is your preferred method of yielding to its seduction?

I am told that the pie is but one of many that are available from your local Costco, no need for vicarious consumption. :)

Actually, I'm not a fan of apple pie, nor a member of Costco. :P

If this entry had "current music" it would be tagged "American Pie", not "Lawyers in Love"

I gotta be honest, this idea both fascinates and scares me.

But then again, so did IPSH, and we all know how that turned out. :)

Well, America's Best Recipes already had a recipe for Maple Pecan Pie, so it's only a short hop skip and leap to adding bacon.

I am making one on Thursday. Maybe there will be a little tart with your name on it. And by tart, I mean a small pie. ;)
